    Well Ive owned my 2005 prius for 6 months now and have set what i think are realistic goals for my self first goal was 55mpg and then 600 mile tank then 60 mpg and most recently 700 mile tank which I achieved today at 700.1 :) before I refilled albeit I needed 11.553 gallons to refill!! I cut the fuel level close I know but was determined!! :)

    Hahaha NICE! 11.55 gallons cutting it awful close. I've never filled past 9 gallons and that's on a blinking pip.

    Ha cool. Do you know how many miles did you drive with one pip, and how many miles with the flashing pip?

    I tend to fill up a little under 500 miles just since I'm already down to one pip there. I've never had it flashing, but with the bladder, not sure if I'd want to!

    On most cars, a blinking pip indicates 1 gallon left. So you can probably get 50 more miles, hence 50 miles per gallon. :D

    Well, there are 8 pips and allegedly up to 12 gallons, but that thing ain't linear, at least in mine. Also, with my constricted bladder sometimes I feel like gas prematurely.

    That didn't sound right, did it? :p

    What MPG did the MFD report ?
    When my car was new I tried to eke miles out of one tank; nowadays I still shoot for high MPG but avoid the blinking pip.

    This is a great time of year for fuel economy games. Not too hot, not too cold ...
    I drove my son into town this evening and managed 73.4 mpg for the ~ 30 mile round trip on the scan gauge. I think only 3 or 4 red lights were obnoxious.
